I liked Lewis as a TE coming out of high school. Glad to see him make the switch and I think he'll do really well there.
I think we have enough talent at CB that whoever wins the battle to replace Harding will be solid. On the other hand, the safety position concerns me a little. Wasn't Montgomery playing more of a hybrid LB/Safety position last year? I'm curious to see if he's forced to play more coverage this year and how that goes. Also dont seem to have a ton of depth there.
Great for depth this year and he'll get a chance to battle for the starting position in 2019. Solid additionYou think he transferred without knowing he will get to battle for the starting spot this year?
You think CM, in a contract year, is relying on a grad transfer whose never seen legitimate playing time since high school? I mean maybe in his head Alex thinks he's battling for a starting spot this season, but I don't buy it unless Gus gets hurt or has a miserable camp. I'm not saying I'm the world's biggest Gus fan, but he knows the playbook and the offense is built around his skill set. I think CM rides with him in such a crucial year.
Who did Treadwell ever recruit at the most important position on the field (QB)? Tupa? Who did he recruit at RB? His son?
Tupa was recruited by most of the MAC and Marshall. Yes, I realize sometimes everyone gets it wrong when it comes to recruiting, but clearly lots of other staffs thought he was D1 material too. In terms of RB, Treadwell recruited Paul Moses, Jamire Westbrook, Dawan Scott (converted to WR), Damon Washington, Spencer McInnis, Falon Lee, and Jack Snowball to name some of the more prominent names.
Is that list of RB names supposed to argue for or against my point? The three running backs that CM has brought in are already head and shoulders above any of those guys IMO.
Look, I'm not saying all of Treadwell's recruits sucked. In the argument of lack of talent vs. poor development, the truth is probably closer to the middle. I've just heard CM mention in pressers, as subtle as he can, that the talent level on this team is lacking. I think if you look back at what Haywood did here at Miami, that was an instance where he inherited good "MAC level' talent that he was able to turn around in a hurry with better coaching and renewed self confidence in the players. I think if you gave CM that same team, we likely get a similar turnaround. That's not the case this time around IMO. I don't think CM inherited half the talent that Haywood did.
